Homemade Buns

Homemade Buns created by  Pamela

I attend a mom's group at my church and one Tuesday morning our "craft" was making buns. The experienced bun makers of the previous generation taught all of us young moms the craft of bun making. Now I am proud of my bun making and I am glad that I had a chance to acquire this new skill. (Thank you Mavis!) Prep time does not include rising time. Sometimes I will make a big batch of this recipe and then make breadsticks, hoagie rolls, small buns for kid's lunches, and even a batch of cinnamon rolls but adding cinnamon and sugar and rolling up the dough. All of these can be tucked into the freezer until you need them.

    This was my first attempt at bread dough. It was so easy to make and they are delicious! My children have informed me I must only bake these and buy no other, ever. I then modified the recipie to make a favourite treat from childhood, a sugar cinnamon bread. Oh my. Winner!!!! Thank you for sharing this recipie.

    I have never made buns before, so these instructions are a bit confusing or lacking of instructions. How long do I let the ingredients of step one sit in the bowl? When do I start adding step 2 ingredients?

    I haven't even tried them yet but they are beautiful. I usually make a butterhorn type roll with eggs but I was in the mood for something a little different. I used all white flour to suit the inlaws and the dough was so smooth and elastic, you just know they are going to be great. I changed the serving to 45 buns so I could make the batch in my KA. I weighed them all (to make them pretty) into 2 oz rolls and got 43. I plan to top them with honey butter as in "You've Got to Be Kidding Me Restaurant Rolls (or Bread)"

    I've been a bread maker for about 8 yrs. Never could find a decent bun recipe though. All started out light but as they cooled they became heavy. Dear Pamela, this is absolutely the best bun recipe on the planet. AND I am very picky. I did cut the recipe in half though because there is only two of us. I followed Beach Girls instructions for rolling and cutting. Next time I'll use Whole Wheat Mixed with White to try. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
